Yesha Callahan, Chris Lee Shirtless Photo Recipient, Comes Forward

Yesha Callahan, the woman on the other end of the Craiglist correspondence with former Rep. Chris Lee (R-N.Y.), has gone on the record with her story, broken earlier this week by Gawker.

"I didn't do this for the attention or, you know, notoriety or money or whatever," a Callahan told the Washington Post of her decision to come forward. "Now I just want to go about my daily business."

On Wednesday, Callahan provided to Gawker a picture of a shirtless Lee, which the congressman, who had claimed to be a 39-year-old, "6ft 190lbs blond/blue," "divorced" "lobbyist," had sent her in response to a Craigslist posting.

"I assumed that other people have probably come across him as well, and he had lied to them," she said, according to the Post. "I felt annoyance at just the audacity of people thinking that they're not going to get found out when they are lying."

Lee resigned a few hours after the scandal broke, claiming that he had "made profound mistakes" and didn't want to distract from the important business of his district.

Callahan told Loop 21 in an anonymous interview earlier this week that "People cheat everyday, but only dumb people get caught." Explaining her decision to turn to Craigslist, she lamented that "Dating in D.C. sucks."

But now Callahan, who the Post describes as "a faculty specialist for the University of Maryland and single mother of a preteen son," seems to want to clarify that Craiglist is not her only source of potential suitors.

"I have no problems finding dates elsewhere," she told the Post. "At that moment, I was online looking and it was just something to do."
